Call the police and report it!!!

You are in your home and you should be able to walk around bare-ass and topless if you need/want to. It's not like this person was walking down the street and saw you, then kept going. This person was peeking in your window and it's illegal.

I'd report it immediately. You don't know what lengths he'll go to get his rocks off. Better safe than sorry. You don't want this creep doing this to others. You didn't recognize him, huh?

There are SO many creeps out there. Scary.

Dear Nov Bride,

"What should I do?"

Call the police.

They would know if other neighbors have reported the same thing, and the evidence at your house might help catch and convict the pervert.

Lori - sounds to me like the person was outside in the bushes below her window; not in his own home. Thats the impression I got anyway. Definately call the police and just let them know you spotted someone looking in your window and you dont feel safe. In addition to that - be very careful with open windows and doors, and maybe invest in an Alarm System of some kind especially if you are home alone a lot during the day. Scary I know.

lori - i think that's where i'm confused. Was he outside your window looking in, or was the person in another house, looking out their window?

She said she saw a 'black shadow move in the window across the way'. She thought maybe it was a 'piece of furniture' and when she looked again it 'stepped back from the window'. 

It is scary either way - inside a home across the way or outside your window. I am just wondering how much can really be done if it's someone in their own home looking out. I know the laws in NY vary and it's something like they can be charged if you can show they are using a device to look but not if they are just looking with their eyes.

Edited to add - That's what I thought they would say. I would keep your clothes on or the blinds closed.

ouch that sucks!

FH  and I saw this CSI rerun a few weeks ago - this guy started out as a peeping tom in the neighborhood but after months of just standing outside the windows and jacking off, he gradually got bolder and bolder, eventually breaking into one of them and raping the woman.

now granted it's tv, but it could happen! id call back today and request to speak to another officer or their supervisor and be sure to complain about the officer that was rude to you last night.

yeah you should have had a shirt on, but at the same, if he justhappened to look out his window and into yours and notice, it may have been inital shock at the situation which wouldn't have been as bad, but the fact that he kept looking is the issue.

There really is no expectation of privacy in your case as the officer said. Sorry but that's a fact. It's up to you to keep yourself decent when you go into plain view.

Sorry, but you're making an assumption about the guy being a "Peeping Tom." What would YOU do if you saw a guy walking around naked in his lighted room six feet away from YOUR window? It's one thing if the guy had his nose pressed up against the glass of your window--it's another if he's looking out his window and you're providing a show. Anyone see "Sex and the City"? Is Samantha a peeping Tom if her next door neighbor is banging his girfriends right in front of her windows, and she's fascinated? I don't think so.

So you saw a shadow in somebody else's house... are you completely certain the person was even looking at you? People do things that involve being by their windows all the time, and if he was looking at you wouldn't he have gone away when you got on the ground and out of view? If it was only a shadow you didn't make eye contact or actually see him watching you, which is a huge deal if you are accusing him of waiting there to peep on you.

You do realize you were standing topless outside his window, just as much as he was standing outside your window.  

I agree that it is creepy, but if you were standing there and just saw some naked person, it wouldn't be that strange just to look at them at first simply because there is a naked person standing there and it is strange.

dear Nov22,

"And the officer was no help. His words were "there is no expectation of privacy with windows set up like yours are.""

The officer is right. If the guy was in his own house, then he should be able to look out his own window any time he likes, without worry about what you are doing in your house. It's up to you to pull your blinds down or close the curtains.

I got the impression, at first, that you saw someone outside your own window.

Sure, you are creeped out. I would be, too. Pull your blinds.
